Can I use the wilton paste colors to dye melted chocolate? I bought a bunch of that crappy (haha) wilton chocolate that is made to be melted, and I want to dye it christmas colors. I have done this before, but it was before I discovered cake decorating and I used grocery store food dye to dye the chocolate, and it absolutely ruined it.
Thanks for the help CC'ers.. and Happy Holidays!!
i used wilton colors to dye chocolate before.... it wasnt chocolate melts but white chocolate or rather almond bark. it will keep the off white color and I didnt try to get deep bright colors, but it worked for the pastels i was going for. i hope this helps!
Thanks for the reply. I think almond bark is pretty similar.. so i'm guessing it will work. Thanks for the tip about it being a bit pastel. I like pink a whole lot better than red.. so I guess everyone will have to settle for my pink and green colored chocolate pretzels. Yum!
any coloring that is not water based will work.
Thank you indydebi! You are always so knowledgeable
I just did this yesterday with the Wilton chocolate melts. It worked fine!
To color choclate-avoid powder and anything water based, all else is fine.
